A brand new week!

The weekend for me, has really passed too quickly. Before I know it, it's Monday already, time to get back to work. Despite the stress and busyness, it's not so bad after all by making the best out of everything. Besides, being busy is better than letting the mind be idle and unproductive. Some ways to get through a hectic week while staying happy are:

1. Get organized

Planning your schedule of all the things you need to get done is important. It will save you a lot of hassle of forgetting to settle whatever needs to be done, and also allows you to plan out your time accordingly. With technology, keeping track of our schedules is so much easier- we can just set alerts or save our schedules in our laptops or cellphones. Whatever method is being used, keeping track of what needs to be done can help avoid missing out important details or deadlines.Also, reduces the probability of panicking and rushing since you've got it all jotted down somewhere.

2. Eat proper meals

No matter how busy you are, eating 3 proper meals a day is vital to prevent ourselves from falling sick.If we keep working, and only eat snacks or junk food, our body will not have enough nutrition, we'll get tired and may incur risks of falling sick. Once we get tired or sick, we won't be able to complete what we need to do efficiently. Thus, ensuring intake of proper meals is extremely vital. If you're too busy to cook on weekdays, you can stock up your food and cook extra on weekends instead of eating fast food everyday-pretty unhealthy. 

3. Get sufficient rest

Getting enough sleep is vital to get you through the week. Some studies say that adults should get about 7 to 9 hours of sleep. I think these figures are quite true, as sleeping for about 5 hours can make us feel really tired the next day. Honestly, if there's something on the following day, I won't feel tired at 
all but at the end of the day, I'll be flat. Of course, it holds true that if we get used to sleeping for shorter hours, there is no problem at all. However, it may not be too good in the long run since we're overworking the body and depriving it from sufficient rest.

4. Stay positive

Life is not a bed of roses-sometimes things that we've planned may not go as we have hoped for. Staying focused and objective is important even in times of failure in order not to lose sight of our goals in life. Even if things go wrong, take it positive as a stepping stone to achieving something better by learning from our mistakes. Do not ever belittle yourself, but be motivated that you have the ability to move on instead of dwelling on past mistakes. In addition, what people say about us usually have a large impact. Take in whatever you feel is constructive, throw out whatever that will only hurt or harm yourself. 

I hope that everyone has a great week ahead =)
